Lowcountry Roofing: Quality Mount Pleasant SC Roofer
Your Mount Pleasant roofing sprung a leak, but your roofer won’t be able to fix it immediately. What do you do?
While the most reliable roofers will get out to your home as soon as they can, quick professional responses aren’t always possible or economically practical. If a big storm is coming, you may just have to perform a temporary fix. Here are some tips on using readily available materials to keep moisture out until assistance can arrive.
There are a number of patch products designed to be easy for homeowners to apply, but be selective about what you choose. In many cases, roofing holes or leaks are hard to pinpoint because they cover large or irregular areas. Select a patch that will protect a sufficient amount of shingle surface area to prevent the incursion of water.
Roofing tar is usually one of the most cost-effective solutions for casual homeowners. Five-gallon buckets can be purchased relatively cheaply at most general hardware stores, and the tar they contain will cover anywhere from 20 to 30 square feet of your roof when the manufacturer’s instructions are followed properly.
Liquid tars are designed to be spread in thin layers that cover a number of worn or degraded shingles.
